Hard to Resist: Country Plaques for Dirty Minds & Mice with Many Heads
I’ve been saving these two priceless pics for a rainy day, so you’re in luck!
It was difficult, but we managed to leave a sale without these two gems. We spotted both at the sale a few weeks ago where we fought for a few moments over a dirty miniature, and also where I saw replicas of Erin’s future children:
I know some would agree with this sentiment, but I’m definitely not one of them. In fact, my back door is always locked. Also, two dollars seems fairly steep.
But this find is definitely even better:
Look, I realize that this is the Mouse King from the Nutcracker (fun fact: Erin didn’t know this), but I don’t remember ever hearing a version of the tale where all the other mice crawl up his outfit. Am I wrong?
Also, which is crazier—the Mouse King or Erin’s expression?
Update from Erin: That Mouse King doesn’t just have mice crawling up his outfit. Look closely, that rodent doll has all those little mice heads attached to his neck! Like he has multiple mice heads on his body. So gross. The original price tag on that atrocity was $40 which is seriously so sad.
As for my expression, who knows.
Anyway, here is a hard to resist treasure that I am adding to the list. It is from one of the barn sales last Friday.
Box of old coconuts. Anyone?
